A report from a pro-abortion rights news outlet said Wednesday half of the abortionists at Whole Woman’s Health clinic in Fort Worth have left their jobs since Texas’s Heartbeat Act went into effect September 1.

“On August 31, there were 17 abortion providers serving at the four locations of the Whole Woman’s Health clinics in Texas,” reported 19th News. “On September 1 — the day that the nation’s most restrictive active abortion law went into effect, there were just eight.”

The new law (SB 8) states abortion procedures are prohibited once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detected – generally at six weeks gestation.

Additionally, the law contains a unique enforcement mechanism whereby any private citizen may file a civil lawsuit against an abortion provider or any other individual who “aids or abets” a “criminal abortion.”

The abortion officials refer to pro-life groups and individuals as “extremists.”

“Just because we are complying with SB 8 doesn’t stop extremists from saying that we are defying SB 8,” said Amy Hagstrom Miller, the CEO of Whole Woman’s Health. “Even with compliance, there is a reasonable amount of threat that our staff and our doctors have to weigh. There is still so much risk to them.”
